The Dance of Life

An old painting, nearly burned in a fire, smelling badly and splotched with mildew and mold was thrown away a while ago. Only a high-resolution photo remains of a time in my life when my family and I happily pranced to life’s dance, enveloped in the last patch of a clear blue sky nearly swallowed by the hot pink sunset. It is a reminder of time gone by and a joyous past. Much sorrow followed these happy times until we three eventually found a way to understand, as Dr A.P. J. Abdul Kalam stated, that difficulties in our life did not come to destroy us, but to help us realize our hidden potential and power.

The journey to understand and uncover our potential and realize our power was rough and bumpy. Several times we only saw a steep wall we had to scale and hung on to dear life amidst an unforeseen avalanche. Some days we witnessed magnificent sunrises, and glorious landscapes filled with hope and peppered with love. Fortunately we three tucked that love safely in our hearts and allowed it to blossom more and more every day. It was after all our life and we danced to it joyously. We are still prancing, but now we each dance to our own distinct beat!
